Unpaid Interns: Hillary Clinton Goes on The Cheap

Seems to us that something strange is afoot in New York City. Hillary Clinton is up to something. We smell it…but what is she up to?

according to the Daily Caller, Clinton is hiring interns for the fall to work in her New York City office. There has not been a specified amount of hours attached to these internships nor are these positions paid.

The Office of Hillary Rodham Clinton is now accepting applications for fall interns to join our New York City office. The internship will run from September to mid-December, though start and end dates are negotiable, and require a minimum of three days per week. Undergraduate students of all majors are encouraged to apply. The internship is unpaid.

Interns will provide support to our staff, assisting our work on a wide range of projects. Work will include but will not be limited to: compiling press clips, monitoring social media, conducting research, drafting correspondence, and assisting with office management.

We are looking for interns with:
• a high level of professionalism and discretion
• strong research and writing skills
• the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team
• strong interpersonal communication skills
• a diligent work ethic and a sense of conscientiousness
• enthusiasm, dedication, and a positive attitude

This from 2015:

Clinton raised $1.4 billion in the 2016 election cycle and cheap is as cheap does…offered campaign interns “free coffee” and a “chance to make history” as, uh, “compensation”.

The sheer benefit of “working” in HRC’s NYC offices? Young democrats could be in the queen’s orbit, I guess. And, yeah. Free coffee. Let’s hope they don’t go cheap on that. Other bennies?


Ramping up the internships at the New York City office also begs the question: “What is she up to”?

Let’s hope not. And these Tweets took the words out of my mouth:

“Businesses have taken advantage of unpaid internships to an extent that it is blocking the opportunities for young people to move on into paid employment. More businesses need to move their so-called interns to employees.” Hillary Clinton, UCLA speech, 2013

Unless, of course, you’re afforded the privilege of working for her. You get to work for free!

Perhaps the highly-paid staff at the Clinton Foundation and HRC’s New York offices should look at re-wording their “job” posting. If you’re “hired” for something, it is our hope that your would be compensated. Oh, that’s right. We forgot to consider the source. Happy Labor Day!

    Is Bill Clinton involved in the interviews? Perhaps I am just being cynical, but it was the first thought that came to mind.

  • ScienceABC123 says:

    Sounds like they are looking for interns with all the qualities that Hillary doesn’t have.

  • GWB says:

    We are looking for interns with:
    • a high level of … discretion

    (I think what she means to say is “who can keep their damn mouths shut!” Hillary wouldn’t know ‘discretion’ if it bit her in the behind.)

    a sense of conscientiousness
    Another thing with which the Clintons are not acquainted well.

    There’s no better time to talk about why workers’ rights would suffer….
    Somehow, I think “tone deaf” is inadequate for this………………………

  • GWB says:

    Is she going to run for the Senate again? Or is she looking to run for NY governor? Hmmmm….

    These aren’t interns, they are disciples.

    Do female unpaid interns working for Hillary make 78% of what male interns working for Hillary make?
